Prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii infection in raccoons



Prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii infection in raccoons



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 200(4): 534-536



Serum samples from 427 raccoons (93 from Pennsylvania, 45 from New Jersey, 72 from South Carolina, 68 from Virginia, 30 from Iowa and 119 from Ohio) were evaluated for T. gondii antibodies in dilutions of 1:25, 1:50 and 1:500. The distribution of T. gondii antibody titres was < 1:25 for 212 raccoons (49.6%), 1:25 for 34 raccoons (7.9%), 1:50 for 117 raccoons (27.4%) and >= 1:500 for 64 raccoons (14.9%).
